Welcome! We're so happy you're here.
Our organization, BEDROOMS ARE FOR PEOPLE, is made up of a small group of thoughtful, committed residents who believe we can help make Boulder a more perfect place for all.
now more than ever, we need to do what we can to take care of each other.
We hope you join us.
Bedrooms Are For People
In most of Boulder, it is currently illegal for more than three unrelated people to live together (in some specific areas, the limit is four). For example, this means that in most of Boulder it is illegal for four unrelated people to live together in a four-bedroom house. It doesn't matter how big the house/property is, or how old or young the residents are.
Some Reasons Why this is a Problem
Instead of only allowing three unrelated people to live together, we believe a simple, common-sense change would be to allow at least one person to live in each bedroom of a home. After all, bedrooms are for people.
Our specific ballot language:
Shall the City of Boulder Charter be amended to allow all housing units to be occupied by a number of people equal to the number of bedrooms plus one, and allow housing units with fewer than four bedrooms to have four people, and in all cases shall relevant International Building and Residential code limits apply?
Our initiative would make it so that if you lived in a three-bedroom house, four people would be allowed to live there together. If you lived in a four-bedroom house, five people would be allowed to live together. Etcetera.
it's a small but mightystep in the right direction.
